Hello!  It’s time for another challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  This week we’re encouraging our challenge participants to use up some of their stash of metal embellishments.

I’ve used a small variety of metal embellishments on my card.  There is a ribbon slide on the ribbon (which, contrary to how it appears in the photo, matches the dark green cardstock).  After I stamped the tree, I “decorated” it with small round brads in three different metallic colors, and used a star-shaped brad for the top of the tree.  Even though I still have about two dozen more ribbon slides and a gazillion more brads among my craft supplies, it feels good to have used some of them on this card.
